Tracy Bickley

Where ever I am in the world, both physically or emotionally; yoga has helped to bring me to a place of deep rest and renewed energy in equal measures. I hope that in creating this yearly yoga celebration in Campiglia Italy, we will create an opportunity for like minded people to come together, share their yoga practice and find quiet places to breathe.


Tanya Love

Tanya teaches an explorative, anatomically intelligent form of yoga dedicated to listening to your body. She is part of the teaching faculty of Intelligent Yoga Teacher Training and a certified Hakomi therapist. She believes that yoga has the potential to be profoundly therapeutic. Her instruction is clear, sensitive and respectful and her classes are light hearted and inclusive.


Gary Carter

Gary has over 30 years of experience in movement physical training, anatomical study and bodywork practices. With a background in athletics, competition cycling, bodybuilding, martial arts, yoga and manual therapies, he himself has studied with many inspiring teachers, trainers and masters in their fields.

Jackie Barker

Jackie has been teaching Yoga for 35 years and her main influence is John Stirk, who she met 20 years ago and introduced her to Scaravelli. Jackie’s work brings sensitivity and freedom into the practice, together with a sense of fun. However, the work is not a soft option, but a deep enquiry into how much the body can open when you ask it properly.

Campiglia Marittima, Tuscany, Italy.

I came to Campiglia around 15 years ago to attend a yoga retreat with Sandra Sabatini and instantly feel in love with its charm and sociable nature.

During the summer the village with its narrow winding paths beautifully decorated with pots of flowers lead up to the castle and down to cafes, bars, restaurants and a robust summer timetable with endless forms of entertainment and breathtaking views.

During the 60’s many of the locals moved into new town leaving the medieval houses to become home to creative souls from all over Europe and America, giving Campiglia a diversity I’ve not yet experienced in any other part of Italy.

If you choose to meander around the village or travel to the local spa or beaches, this part of Tuscany is an ideal place to practice yoga, rest, restore and enjoy the spirt of Italy.

Celebrating Yoga, Life & Love

Celebrating Vanda 2019 yoga festival took place in Campiglia, Italy this summer and like CV2018 it was a joyous occasion, bringing together like minded Yogis who approach their practice in an explorative, sensitive and intelligent way.

Essentially my passion is bringing yoga students together and holding the space for them to deepen their practice and feel safe enough to explore.

There are so many teachers who have been inspired by Vanda’s legacy and have gone on to develop the practice. Each teacher gathering experience from other schools of thought, rituals and practices that expand on these ideas and bring them to life in their own unique way.

I’m excited to continue developing and growing this festival, creating a platform for teachers to share their practice on and off the mat.

This years schedule will expand, offering therapeutic treatments a social celebration at the end of the week.

While we will continue to explore Vanda’s legacy, Celebrating Yoga Life & Love will be at the heart of this festival as I go forward.

Love Tracy xx
